Pain Management Science Cafe a Success

The Convergence Institute recently sponsored a Science Cafe on the topic of Pain Management in Connecticut: Challenges, Innovations & Research on Friday, March 22. With this topic being at the forefront of the news lately, the event was well attended and included a lot of interaction and engagement from the audience, which consisted of pain sufferers, health care providers, social workers, and more.

The Institute welcomed three guest speakers at the event: Dr. Jonathan Kost from Hartford Hospital, Dr. William Shaw from UConn Health, and Dr. William Zempsky from CT Children’s Medical Center. Dr. Reinhard Laubenbacher, Director of the Connecticut Pain Consortium at UConn Health, also spoke about how the Consortium is working with these and other pain experts around the state to bring together data, research, education and pain management in Connecticut.
